This city is the official border between Europe and Asia. You can even skip several times from Europe to Asia and back and of course take a photo standing in two parts of the world simultaneously. Those who are interested in Soviet times may visit the residence of KGB, Gorodok Chekistov (CheKa officers’ cantonment). The largest in Russia museum of semi-presious stone contains a wonderful collection of stone mosaics and carvings.
